Ghost Heart (The PSS Chronicles #3) by Ripley Patton
Review by Angela
Stars: 5 

This is a young adult, paranormal fantasy. This is a short read that could be read as a stand alone, but it ended with a touch of suspense. I need to know what happens next, thankfully this is the first book in The PSS Chronicles. This is full of action and I was constantly wondering what would happen next. The book is also emotional, it touches on grief. I am a new reader for Ripley Patton and I am a devoted follower. I can not wait to read the next book. 

This is the story about Olivia Black, she is your normal seventeen year old high school student... well other than her hand. She was born with psyche Sans Soma, or PSS, a defect that causes her hand to take on a ghostly feature. Olivia is a little on the dark side, she loves black, and her lipstick proves it. Olivia is not a people person, she has one best friend and she is comfortable in a cemetery. She is very critical and she speaks her mind. (I love her)

Olivia's mom gives her a hard time, with her choice of attire, believing she is trying to get attention. Little does her mom know the changes that Olivia is going through. Marcus a new guy in class whom she has disliked from the beginning, might be the answer to all her questions. But can she trust him? Things are about to change and she is in the run for her life, and Marcus will be her only chance for escape. 

favorite passages:
"Why were the hot ones always such cocky, self-absorbed douche bags?"
"The phrase "smoking hot" flitted thorough my mind like a moth, and I batted it away."
"She never told me anything, which was pretty ridiculous in a town so small and nosey you couldn't take a crap without the neighbors overhearing and asking you how it all come out?"
"They were just people; mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, wives and husbands. People someone loved and missed."<2
"You're being rude, child of mine. Don't embarrass me."
"Maybe he really believed the bullsh** he was shoveling, but I'd learned a long time ago that the worse things are, the more people lie about them."
"He comes pre-pis**d," Marcus said, smiling."
"The rumors have rumors."
"Sorry was a kid's game, or something you said when you bumped into someone. It didn't hold a candle to fu**ing death." <3

ghost handGhost Hand (The PSS Chronicles #1)
By Ripley Patton

Genre: Paranormal Thriller
Age category: Young Adult

Seventeen-year-old Olivia Black has a rare birth defect known as Psyche Sans Soma, or PSS. Instead of a right hand made of flesh and blood, she was born with a hand made of ethereal energy.

How does Olivia handle being the girl with the ghost hand? Well, she's a little bit morbid and a whole lot snarky.

Her mother thinks her obsession with death, black clothing, and the local cemetery is a bid for attention. But when Marcus, the new guy in Olivia's calculus class, stares at her like she's a freak, Olivia doesn't like it. And when her hand goes rogue, doing things she never imagined possible, Olivia finds herself running for her life with Marcus from a group of men bent on taking the power of her hand for their own nefarious purposes.

ghost holdGhost Hold (The PSS Chronicles #2)
By Ripley Patton

Genre: Paranormal Thriller
Age category: Young Adult

Olivia Black is back.

Only this time she's not the one in need of rescue.

Samantha James, rich, popular, and an award-winning composer at age seventeen, is the next target on the CAMFers' list. In order to convince Samantha to come with them, Olivia and Passion must pose as cousins, blend into the most affluent high school in Indianapolis, and infiltrate a mysterious cult known as The Hold.

Olivia doesn't expect it to be easy, even with the PSS guys backing them up. But what she discovers over the course of the mission will call into question everything she ever believed about herself, her family, and especially about Marcus, the guy she is undoubtedly falling in love with.
